Ok - what I would like to do is download video podcasts from an RSS feed (for instance programming from a site like cNet or Revision3) and then have them pushed to the Tivo appear in the NPL (cause Tivo provides for custom RSS but doesn't think people might want it auto-checked and downloaded....grrr).
What I don't understand is what I need to do to make it work. In other words I can't tell if the feature has been implemented (if so how it is used, the only set of instructions I see didn't work for me) or if I need to download the diff file and some how merge it with pyTivo (if so how is this done).
Anyway I may be jumping in over my head here, but I'd appreciate any thoughts and help anyone can give. which looks to do exactly what I would like to do.
Thanks for pointing this out to me. I would prefer something more integrated with pyTivo (as Mathwiz's solution appears to be) but it does the trick (well with a slight bug that can be worked around). Will need to find something to manage the download from the RSS feeds (harder than you might think if you just want something lightweight sitting the background).
Would be really nice just to have pyTivo handle it all though .
The problem is that unless Tivo has changed it since the time I played with it they only automatically download those feeds that they have highlighted (for instance Tekzilla automatically appears in the NPL because it is one such feed). If you have to type in the feed then yes it will retrieve it but only if you remember it and go to the VOD section and tell it to download. It won't do it automatically do it which is what I want to do.
Ideally of course I would love for Tivo to handle everything pyTivo does for free (well the cost of the unit) and have no need for pyTivo or any third party software - but it doesn't, so I'm glad for pyTivo and grateful to wmcbride and other developers...........now if we could just get auto-transfers pytivo would be perfect (well at least until some new feature idea comes up )
